What's a Lube Survey?

Authored by: Allan Zieser, STLE, CLS


Have you ever wondered if your business is using the correct lubricants for your equipment? Lots of companies use the same lubricant everyone has used in the past for each piece of equipment. This is a common practice when new personnel arrives. You just show the personnel what lubricant you are currently using in your equipment. But is this the correct lubricant for your machines?


The best way to find out the answer to this common question is to have your Ottsen Oil Expert stop by and perform a lubricant survey. This is a detailed process that allows us to find the correct lubricant for your specific equipment. The lube survey also allows us to find and remove lubricants that you may not need any longer. Often, we can reduce the number of lubricants that you need to keep on-site for your equipment.


The lube survey is personalized to your company and your equipment and is a physical document that you can refer to and use to train your personnel.  It is unique to your sites and equipment. There is no cookie-cutter methods involved, just hard work on our part to ensure that you get the best out of your equipment by using the correct lubricants.
